In a bear market..
... leverage without set stop losses is bad.
... not sticking to your initial plan and being swept into the 'bargains' is bad.
... trying to catch a falling knife hurts.
... being prepared to take a loss is good in the long run(fall).
... not taking profits when prices were unreasonably high is regretful.
Bull markets do come to an end, trust half the world when they say it's a bear market.
And I thought the bull market would have never ended, silly me. It's funny, people had made comments just like the ones I just posted yet I didn't quite understand until I had personal experience. It was a good lesson, I think I got my money's worth
